and founder of the new democratic network and former campaign advisor to president bill clinton. what a power panel we have here. steve moore let me start with you. was this a surprise to you? >> yeah, i think it was a surprise to everyone that the number went negative. you know this, melissa, as well as anyone, the number that matters is private gdp growth. government shouldn't even be part of gdp and gdp, government spending actually fell substantially, military spending was down by over 20%. that accounted for the negativity. even if you take out government we were 1.3% growth rate. melissa, that doesn't cut it that is pretty anemic number. one other statistic quickly to mention. there was a big increase in the amount of disposable personal income reported in this report. and i have a suspicion that that is a result of the fact, remember you reported on all these special dividends and so on. melissa: right. >> that were paid in the fourth quarter. i think that showed up in these disposable income numbers. which means we may see a drop-off in those numbers in the first quarter of this year.

of president clinton. now, if people here in the building say, look, you know, chuck hagel would be fine for us, including military uniformed service members because they understand, as you just pointed out, that the white house is going to be pulling the strings, turning the screws no matter who is the secretary of defenses. republican or democrat. i do want to set the record straight a little bit on this debate over the surge. now, senator hagel in the confirmation hearing said that 1,200 americans were killed during the 18-month surge operation. that's true. 1,200 americans died, but the actual number of combat deaths was 942. what's important to point out is that the 12 months before the surge began the total number of service members killed in iraq was 820. now, this is the most important figure i think if you are going to argue was the surge a success or not? that is the fact that the 12-month period following the surge operation there were 313 american deaths and the next year only 150. so that's why you hear a very strong argument, particularly from uniformed military personnel and lead

in this hearing. in 2000, an overwhelming majority of senators sent a letter to president clinton, reaffirming our solidarity with israel. i was one of them who carried that letter around. i remember it well. and senator hagel was one of just four who refused to sign that letter. and i'm sure he'll want to comment about that. in 2001, he was one of just two senators who voted against a bill extending harsh sanctions against iran. a year later, he urged the bush administration to support iran's membership in the world trade organization. senator hagel voted against a resolution, designating iran's rev resolutionary guard corps, a group responsible for killing american soldiers in iraq and afghanistan, as a terrorist organization. and on multiple occasions, he has advocating for direct negotiations with iran, who have continually repress its people, pursue nuclear weapon capabilities, and pursue terrorist proxies, including hamas, hezbollah, threaten the people in the region. he has been a supporter of the zero global movement. we're very sensitive to that. we know that the president has said many t

. the act was signed into law in 1996 by bill clinton-- a man who understands being defensive about your marriage. [ laughter ] now, barack obama's justice department decided not to defend doma, but don't worry, your tax dollars are still being spent on the case. house republicans hired super-straight, super-lawyer paul clement to defend marriage to the tune of $2 million dollars. [ laughter ] now, the case won't be heard until march, but that money is already buying brilliant legal arguments from clement like: "marriage should be limited to unions of a man and a woman because they alone can produce unplanned and unintended offspring." [ laughter ] damn straight. yes! yes, marriage is for straight people, who can go to a wedding, get tanked on chablis, and make a baby, barebacking it in a coat closet. [ laughter ] as -- [cheers and applause] fans of the coat closet. that's how god intended it. [ laughter ] planning to have kids just isn't right. [ laughter ] but perhaps the strongest argument clement yanked out of his law-hole is this one: "gays and lesbians have attained more legislativ
strongest alley in the -- ally in the arab world. secretary clinton said al jazeera is not part of the problem but the solution. i'm comfortable with it. i completely get the criticism but it was a good choice and the net benefit for the u.s. is positive. >> jon: it shows. the book talks a lot about the sustainability of capitalism. capitalism is based in consumption and very difficult to reform it even while it's being one of the staunchest defenders of sustainability. my point was only in how complicated the ties are. >> i get i. it's complicated. i completely believe in this. it's absolutely the right choice. if i could talk for a moment about sustainable capitalism. >> jon: we're going to go to i believe beer and violent movies and then we'll come back and talk about sustainability [cheers and applause] >> jon: welcome back. we're talking here with vice president al gore. we're talking earlier. it's one of the most interesting pieces in the book is this idea of sustainable capitalism. >> yes. >> jon: which is difficult because it's look by definition a voracious overeater.

deal with then president bill clinton. i stood in the rose garden and made that announcement, and it really doesn't matter whether it's bill clinton or president obama or wayne lapierre. if it makes sense, it makes sense. and if it doesn't, it doesn't. we need to grow up in the country, and start dealing with the real problems and face them as adults and i think we can and should. and enough with the comments and the back and forth. the problem in america -- and we all agree it's criminals. any criminal with a gun is a bad thing. and there are things we can do to make it harder for criminals to obtain guns and we ought to do them. >> cenk: i want to talk to you about that in a second but i want to finish up this issue. the nra makes a dramatic change -- you pointed to it too, the statements from wayne lapierre from before 2005. in 2005 -- i keep pointing to that year because two things happened. one they started taking corporate money from gun manufacturers, and they started defending gun manufacturers from lawsuits. so if it isn't the money what changed

[ laughter ] >> and what we're hearing are people saying why should we get rid of our conservative principals on immigration f
clinton, john mccain, joe biden were falling all over themselves to express their support for israel. the only exception to that rule was senator chuck hagel. i don't have anything to go with that with what you might have said but -- some of the concerns -- i used to say when i was the whip in the house you can count on the house and the senate to be among other thing, always pro-israel. i think that is the main stream of our views. i've seen a number of times that you've said you can be pro-israel but that does not mean you have to be for everything that israel is for. they are what they are. they are reported from comments that you made that are out of the context of the other comments. also, earlier today, i asked you about the bloated pentagon. you said that -- those comments were before the sequestration bill passed. they were after the bill passed. sequestration passed on august 2 and the interview was on august 29. what you said on august 29 of -- in that "financial times" interview you said "the defense department, i think -- this is your quote "the defense department is blo
and the quote. a couple of points. let's go back to the ilsa vote. about the original vote during the clinton administration. and connect that to a comment i made in the world herald about they don't work. they are ineffective. and by the way, i've already noted for the record here that i have supported and voted for some unilateral sanctions. i think i noted three specific ones that i recall. but on your specific questions about the specific comment. just to give you an example of what i was talking about. you were not in the senate at the time. some were. but those who were here in the senate might recall the european union's reaction to that ilsa act. i was not in the senate when that was voted on original, so i didn't have a vote. but in 1988 the european union passed a resolution against the united states and threatened to take the united states to the world trade organization. as a consequence, secretary all bright had to get into this and as a consequence to that president clinton had to sign a waiver to allow a french oil company not to be part of that u.s. unilateral waiver. now, i'm

for being shrewd. nia-malika henderson as well. >>> up next, before hillary clinton steps down as secretary of state, we thought we'd look back at her lighter moments. and if you want to follow me on twitter, hopefully you know the rules. you just need to spell smerconish. this is "hardball," the place for politics. said it. how did i know? well, i didn't really. see, i figured low testosterone would decrease my sex drive... but when i started losing energy and became moody... that's when i had an honest conversation with my doctor. we discussed all the symptoms... then he gave me some blood tests. showed it was low t. that's it. it was a number -- not just me.

much, testifies about what happened in benghazi. i haven't forgotten about benghazi. hillary clinton got away with murder. >> there you go. hillary clinton got away with murder, and we are going to hold chuck hagel effect tily his nomination hostage until we get our clearance. >> the thing is, as i think you'll see -- as the hagel hearings go on, as you saw in the lindsey graham line, there is an attempt to manufacture more divisiveness within the congress as regards though national security policy. with regard to other realms where there are disagreements in washington, i think we haven't seen a consensus really like this in many years, so we'll have to bring benghazi up again. we have to talk about whether the surge worked or not six years ago. those issues for people, the public listening, sht going to have huge traction. >> no, but there is something aside from the style debate and obvious political posturing that comes into play here. in what mccain said is an important question. you took this position. you had this belief at that time when the surge was in play. do you think yo
clinton who was a pretty steady very prepared in her testimony. on key issues, he seems to not know what the president's approach is to iran, for instance. he talked about containment. that's not the president and this administration's policy. and he just seems unsteady. he called the government of iran legitimate. it, of course, is not a legitimate government. and it seems to be rigged in favor of the current president so this is a surprise. here's a man who obviously does know the issues well and has been prepared for this moment and talking to senators over these last couple of days and weeks preparing for this very moment. so for him to come in and stumble on the high profile questions and questions that he certainly knew were coming is a bit of a surprise. >> right. let me play an exchange, colonel, folks are talking about right now. another between senator john mccain and chuck hagel, this one regarding syria. let's listen in, please. >> do you believe that we should be more engaged in syria? >> i know this administration is very engaged in working with its partners. >> so you don'
